Make it Squeaky Clean with this MATCC Foam Wash Gun from Yomoid.

Standard

Pressure washers are a common addition to many homes. We are renovating a home, and my son is rebuilding a truck. So, we had to get a new pressure washer, lol. Having a foam wash gun really makes cleaning so much easier. But, only if they are made well, and are easy to operate. Fortunately, we lucked into this one from Yomoid.

This foam wash gun arrives in three pieces: the bottle with tubing, the gun grip, and the nozzle attachment. It’s ready to roll right out of the package. The 1L bottle is a great size, and holds enough soap and water to wash more than one vehicle. My son has even used it to wash some of the car parts for his truck. The bottle is made out of a thick plastic. It is not bendy, or cheap at all. It should last a while. The same goes for the rest of the unit. The grip section is made out of a thick plastic, and the working parts are made out of brass fittings, just like you see in the plumbing world. On the grip, it actually states that the maximum psi that can be used is 4350psi, and a good working psi is 2175psi. The minimum required is 1000psi, though.

Our pressure washer, that we used this foam wash gun with, is 3100psi. It works like a dream for us. It’s just a twist knob to adjust the setting. The markings are only +, -. The + sign will add more water flow, which decreases the foam output. The – sign, decreases the water flow, which increases the foam output. Then, to adjust the fan spray, you just need to twist the from end of the gun, which is the nozzle end, that’s it. It’s really easy to use. Just attach the pressure washer tubing to the grip end. Add your soap and water to the bottle. If needed, you can add warm water to the bottle, and then the soap, to more quickly spread the soap into the water. We didn’t do this, and we still got a lot of foam.

Now, when you are done sudsing up whatever you are washing, you can easily disconnect the water bottle and fan nozzle from the handle section. Then, just add a fitting of your choice onto the quick connect end, and rinse off your project. It took my husband about 30 seconds to make the initial changeover, that’s it. Using the gun grip is really nice. It’s comfortable to hold and use. It’s so easy to stop the flow by just releasing your grip. We did not use a special soap to wash our vehicles, only dish soap, and it worked so well through this. My son used Zep Purple Degreaser Soap through this foam wash gun, and he said it worked really well for him. It really made the job easier for him.  Overall, this is a well-made, easy to use tool. It really has become a quick indispensable tool to our pressure washer.

Let there be Light – iTLTL’s Creative LED Desk Lamp & Night Light

Standard

Lighting is an important feature for any home. I’m not talking about just regular overhead lighting, or even regular table lamps. One should always be prepared for emergencies, or just plain unplugged, fun. This Creative LED Desk Lamp & Night Light from iTLTL, fits into that category. This portable light can be used both plugged in, or plug free. It arrives with a USB power cord. So, first thing, charge it up. You will have to provide your own adapter.

Let there be light 5

You can use it plugged in, or without, once it’s charged up. It doesn’t take long to charge enough to use it without the USB cord. I received the pale yellow lamp, but they have it in all white, too. It is such a simple light to operate, but it is very useful. I was a tad skeptical when I first pulled it out of the box. It seemed too lightweight, which was equivalent to being cheap, in my mind. I was quite wrong, and I am happy I was. With this light being so lightweight, it can easily be used for camping. If you used your own clip or cord, you could easily hang this from a tree, or from your tent. I weighed the lamp, and it only weighs 0.4lbs. One pound equals 16 ounces, so this light only weighs 6.4 ounces. Definitely light enough to pack out with. Another lightweight aspect of this light, is the power it uses. It only uses 2W of power. You really can’t go wrong with LEDs nowadays.

This light does not get hot to the touch when in use, at all. So, it is safe to have around your children and pets. This is a 3-function light. You can have the base illuminate like a lantern. You can use it as a desk type lamp, and you can dim the light to your desired brightness, in both settings. On the top of the light, there is a turn nob. You just turn it to your desired brightness, that’s it. When used as a lamp, just unhook, and pull up the arm. There is a diffuser on the LEDs, so it is eye friendly. This part gets only slightly warm to the touch. The head of the lamp is actually the light source for the entire light. When the arm is in the down position, the LED side rests flat against the body, which is the lantern portion. It illuminates the entire base as the lantern, when turned on. This design is what keeps it so lightweight, and portable. On the lowest setting the light can last around 40 hours on one charge.

My youngest has a real fear when it comes to the dark. So, we like to be prepared in our home for any power outages. We also, always, travel with a backup light source. We have been in a hotel before, where the power went out for a bit. Boy, did those backup light sources come in handy for us. This one will definitely be one we take on vacation this year. I love that it can stand on its’ own as both a lantern, and a desk lamp. It really makes it so much more useable than a regular flashlight. The neck of the lamp is very bendable, so you can really position task oriented light, really well. But, since it clips into the base firmly, it then becomes a great handle to both hang it, and carry it from. We are overall, realy pleased with this product.

Incredible sound from Hobest Bluetooth Headphones.

Standard

Hobest headphones 2

At first glance, this product really impressed me. We go through a lot of Bluetooth headphones in our home, too. I love the thick and sturdy storage case this product came in. The zipper functions perfectly, and it easily holds the headphones and charging, Micro USB cord, when not in use. The cord is a longer one, which I am really appreciating. They have really shortened many charging cords nowadays, and that is really starting to annoy me. We use charging stations a lot, and you can’t charge everything in one area, if all the cords are short. In your package, you do get the headphones, the charging Micro USB cord, directions, the storage case, and 2 extra pairs of silicone ear buds in different sizes. These headphones are very sturdy in hand. The two arms that unfold, do so well. No weakness in the joints noted at all. I love, love, love the splash of celery green color on the ends of the black headphones. It really gives this set a sporty look. I charged mine immediately upon arriving. The charging port is on the underside, of the right arm. All of the controls for the headphones are in this location as well. (They do, however, have other color options available.)

Hobest headphones 3

On the right arm, you will find an actual on/off button, a + button, a – button, and a telephone button. On each arm, there is a small button that retracts the earbuds. This is the style where you pull the earbud out of the arm, to your desired length. I can see pushing that button by accident, so be careful. It is the first button, on the top of the right arm. If you remember that, you can avoid retracting your earbud, lol. The + and – buttons are on the side of the right arm, which will help you avoid that too. There is no LED light when charging. When you turn on the headset, it vibrates, and then you can see the blue/red LED lights. They are located at the on/off switch.

I have a Note 5, and I did not have any issues pairing with this headset. It comes up as SX-990 to pair. No code was needed. Make sure you pull out extra wire when fitting the headphones on, Otherwise the weight of the headset, when you move around, will pull the earbuds out of your ears. Once they are fit, they stay in pretty well. I bopped around, and they stayed put. The sound quality is awesome. I listened to one song with a lot of ranges, and a lot of bass, and it sounded great! The song was Cold by Maroon 5. I was able to enjoy music from Rap to Boccelli. I like all kinds of music, and I am really enjoying this headset. It has a mic for calls as well. Something my husband has to have. He is always on the road for work, and needs to have the ability to take calls at all hours. Since there is a separate button for calls, it really makes calls easy. This set has a high sensitivity microphone, which has helped keep his calls clear. It also has CVC 6.0 Noise Cancellation technology. I can sit and listen to music in the living room with the TV on, and my son playing games on his laptop, and just hear the music. So, I think it works really well. You might want to not listen to music while driving because of this though, lol.

Hobest headphones 4

Now, when listening to music, you control the functions with the + and – buttons. To increase or decrease volume, you need to press and hold the coordinating buttons. To restart a song, or go through the playlist, you need to just press, not hold and press, the + and – buttons. So, this is like most headphones, and easy to do.

These headphones will connect to IOS and Android. It has Bluetooth 4.1 technology in it. This helps with longer battery time, from what I read. I haven’t tested the standby hours, but it is stated to have this battery life: “supports 18 hours talking time, 16 hours music playback time, and more than 300 hours standby time.” We never have just talk, with no music either, lol. Now, these headphones do talk to you which I like. For example, when you turn the headset on or off, it says things like, “Power Off”.

Hobest headphones 5

My husband has officially taken off with these headphones, lol. He also has a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 phone. He, like myself, has had no trouble with connecting to these headphones. The calls are nice and clear, both on and off Wi-Fi calling. The double tap of the mfb, or telephone button, does indeed bring up the last number called. When a call comes in it does state, Incoming Call, and then spells out the number. We have been able to get through a day of use on one charge, too. The calling feature where it tells you in the incoming number, is very valuable if you are driving. It gives you the ability to know who’s calling without looking at your phone. Now, when a call is coming in, and you do not walk to accept the call, you just need to double tap the mfb button; that’s it!

Hobest headphones 6

Overall, these are comfortable to wear. The sound has been great, the calls clear, and easy to do. We both have been appreciating the storage case. My husband likes these so much, he has claimed permanent ownership of them, lol.

These headphones are available here for purchase: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XRYQJ2Z/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I received these at a discount. All opinions are expressly my own.

Home finishes by 3D Wall Panels, CSI Wall Panels.

Standard

Whether you are in the middle of a remodel, or just want to freshen up a room, these wall panels from 3D Wall Panels – CSI Wall Panels, will definitely do the trick. We happen to be in the middle of a renovation. The home is from the 1960’s, and definitely needs some modernization. What I love about their wall panels, is that you do not have to only choose an ultra-modern design, but you can choose more neutral designs as well. There is something for everyone. They offer a YouTube video to show you how simple it is to install these panels. You do not need a professional to install, which is always a benefit to the wallet, lol. Although, my husband is a master carpenter and a commercial electrician, so I did have the upper hand. These wall panels are appropriate for home, office, and commercial properties. They come unfinished, and will need to be painted by you. I was given a panel of wall panel choices to choose from. They were made from either one of these choices:

A.      Panel Size: 19.68?x 19.68?inch, 725g

Material: MDF Wood fiber.

Thickness: 3mm on flat areas, Upto 1/2 inch on Dimensional areas.

Features: DIY Product, Eco Friendly, Lightweight & Paintable

Package: 10 panels/Box. Covers 27 sqft/box

Color: Comes only in its Natural wood color

 

B.       Panel Size: 19.68?x 19.68?inch, 275g

Material: Sugarcane fiber (Bagasse) Paper pulp.

Thickness: 1.5mm on flat areas, .50? on Dimension areas.

Features: DIY Product, flexible, Lightweight & Paintable

Package: 12 panels/Box. Covers 32.29 sqft/box

Color: Comes only in its Natural off white color

 

I chose the wood wall look, done in the MDF wood fiber material. The natural finish is more of a light brown. Besides providing the paint to finish, we also had to buy adhesive to mount them to the wall. We repainted our wall before applying the panels. You will want to mount them to a clean, dry surface. These wall panels have an A+ air emissions rating, so they are healthy to have them in home. They are 100% Natural, eco-friendly, and 100% of the wood is from well managed forests. I am really happy with these panels over all. I have insane allergies and asthma, and I have had absolutely no irritation from thee panels at all. The company obviously has pride in their product, and it shows.

I received two boxes of their wall panels. Each box contained 10 panels, which covers approx.. 27sqft each. Make sure you let the panels acclimate to the temperature in your room, where you are doing the install, approx.. 24 hours before you apply them. We let them sit about 4 days, since we were waiting for the weekend. Each panel measures out at 19.68″x 19.68″ inches. However, they are all nominal. The way the come out of the machine, they are not all exactly the same. So, measure and trim before install. That is what we discovered. My husband said this is too be expected, and experiences this with tile all of the time, too. The adhesive we used to install the panels is Power Grab by Loctite. He really liked how well this adhesive worked. The panels held very well, and didn’t need to be taped while the adhesive took hold. Now, besides measuring and trimming your panels, you will also want to sand down the edges. Really check out each panel. Ours had mildly rough edges, from the way they were made. So, sand them down before mounting them. Below are two pictures of a painted sample with rough edges. You can sand the edges down and repaint without difficulty.

Then, make sure you mark your center line when you start your layout. You want to apply your adhesive to the back of the panel, on all of the raised surfaces, then apply them to your wall. Once all of your panels are up, according to your plan, it is time to prime, and then paint your panels. The panels dry fairly quickly, as the boards are quite absorbent.

You may need to re-sand the edges after the primer dries. That is something you will have to decide. We chose a high gloss paint, for that smooth, modern finish. We set up our own spray tent area with visqueen and painters tape. That way our area was protected from any overspray mist. The spray technique really allows you to get that smooth, sleek finish. We used Valspar High Gloss Lacquer in White. This paint really worked well on the panels, and no special sprayer was needed. Since we only did a section on our wall, we trimmed out the panels with premium grade 1x2s. Then we used caulk to fill in the gap. That was also really simple and fairly inexpensive to do. You want to prime and paint the panels after they are installed on the wall. That way you can also make sure any spacing between the panels is also painted, for a smooth finished product.

Our panels were nice and solid, and easy to work with. We did not haVE any damaged panels in our shipment.  We are extremely happy with the finished product. We love it as our background for the electric fireplace we installed. It adds so much style and flare to the room. With the lacquer finish that we chose, it adds a lot of shine to them when the light hits it just so. I can’t wait to hang my new chandelier in the room as the finishing touch. 3D Wall Panels at www.csiwallpanels.com, is definitely worth a visit and a purchase.

My Tryazon Ozobot Evo Party!

Standard

I was so excited to be a part of Tryazon’s Ozobot Home Party. I homeschool my youngest, so I am always eager to get my hands on new tech. The Ozobot is a very simple and fun way to experience the world of coding hands on. The thought of coding for most people, equals boredom and the feeling of being defeated, before you even try it. My youngest is a computer attic. He loves everything that has to do with computers, and gaming. Since this is a hands-on method to inspire and teach, it is perfect for him. This little robot has been tested for ages 8+.

The Ozobot is part of the Stem Learning Practice, which is a big part of today’s education. What is Stem? Stem is: “STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach.” It’s a feel-good moment for a parent to introduce this to their child. It definitely was for me. I feel that this is also great for older people, that are newer to computers. It’s a fun way to keep the brain stimulated, as well as keeping your motor dexterity up. It will also be a great generation gap filler for some grandparents to interact with their grandchildren. A win, win overall, for everyone.

You can get Ozobot Evo in a starter package. It includes the Ozobot Evo, a 9 piece playing field which is double sided, 1 micro USB cord, 1 carrying pouch, and 4 colored markers. The playing field has a green banded side and a blue banded side. There is a Quick Start Guide in the kit as well. You can go to  http://ozobot.com/manuals to download the actual manual. That is what I did. You can check out their website for all the information you will need. (http://ozobot.com/) They even have all the different codes this little guy knows, clearly displayed there. Ozobot can remember up to 500 codes at one time. The website also teaches you how to draw lines, and add code. You can print games for your Ozobot, as well as print out the codes, too. There is a free app to download. “The Ozobot app is designed for tablets with 9 inch screens or larger, camera availability and iOS 6.0 and Android 2.3 (or newer).” I only have Android products, so I was only able to test out the app for Android. I downloaded one app: Ozobot Evo. Other Ozobot apps will come up in the search, but this is the newest version of the Ozobot, and only this app will work for it. There are sections on the app that state coming soon: Ozo Tunes and Maze Runner. We can’t wait for them to be ready. The app is free to download. There is an Ozoblockly section on the app. This is the website for that: http://ozoblockly.com/. Unfortunately, “the Ozobot Evo video tutorial is coming soon”. More to look forward too, lol. I printed out multiple pages of each printable game, and code sheet. That way, I have a folder ready to go for playtime. Now, there are online games on the www.ozobot.com website as well. There are three main sections on the website: Products, Play, and Education. So, it is pretty quick and simple to find what you are looking for.

The Quick Start Guide has you set up the playing mat, green side up. The pieces are a thick laminated cardboard, and fit together like a puzzle. Then you press and hold the button on the Evo, until it flashes white, then release and place it on the starting spot. It takes over from there. It’s a great way to get started hands on with it. It will keep going on the board until you hold and press the button and it turns off. The Evo makes the cutest little sounds and flashes multiple colors. My son love it. The app can be finicky, and sometimes the Ozobot doesn’t want to pay attention, lol. In other words, it’s just like a child, lol. They do state that it is important to calibrate your Evo each time, before you play with it. You can draw a black circle on a piece of paper, or white board. I drew some on paper , and then laminated it, for future uses. Then press and hold the power button on the Evo for approx.. 2 seconds. It will start to flash white. Quickly place it on the black dot, until it flashes green. It is now calibrated. Now, on the video it flashes white for a good bit, as well as green. My Evo barely flashes white or green, but it does calibrate, so don’t panic if yours is like mine. I had emailed support, and they were fantastic at getting back to me and answering my questions. That was a huge relief for me. I hate companies that refuse to help out. 

The Education section is packed full of information to use as a family, or as a classroom set up. There are many sections to go through: Teacher’s Guide, Ozobot Tips, OzoCode Reference, OzoBlockly Getting Started, Calibration Tips, Log Sheet, and so much more. The amount that you can do and learn from this little guy, is really up to you, and how much you plan to follow and learn from this website. It is definitely worth delving into. Even though I laminated everything, it did not interfere at all with the Ozobot Evo being able to pick up the lines and codes.

They describe it as a three-tier system. First you need to draw the lines for the Ozobot to follow. Second, you drag and drop blocks of code (their OzoBlocky System) within the lines. The third thing is to take what you have learned, and create your own actions, and “world” to play in. To add another twist to the Ozobot, on their webpage, they even offer Marvel skins, that take on lights on sounds of the characters. For a reluctant learner, this might really help to inspire them.

I initially had a lot of trouble getting my Evo to connect to my app. There is a little trick to it. When you are loading your app, make sure you give it permission to use your Bluetooth. Then whenever you are accessing the app, turn on the Evo next to the device, at the same time. That way it is able to connect. Since I have started turning the app and the Evo on at the same time, I haven’t had an issue at all. This robot has become one of my son’s favorite “toys”. I hate calling it a toy since it is robotic based. It really is so much more than a toy.

We had so much fun at our Ozobot Tryazon Party. People were amazed at how interactive it was. They could not believe all the different ways you can interact with it too. We all had to agree that the lights and sounds that this little robot makes, is what really brings it alive to people. It gives it so much personality. I loved seeing all ages play with it. One is now giving one to her grandson for his birthday in June. She loves that he can learn with it, and she can interact with it, with him too. We had an older teacher there, that just fell in love with it, and everything the Evo can do. She was so impressed. This overall experience has been so much fun! I truly recommend the Ozobot Evo for all ages over 8.

You can follow Ozobot and be a party of their community on Facebook, here: https://www.facebook.com/ozobot/

There are even Ironman and Captain America Smart Skins available. We love that type of thing in my household, lol. This website has the packages available here: https://shop.ozobot.com/collections/all-new-ozobots. My son has officially put them on his wish list, since both Easter and his birthday are coming soon.

AOMUU Face Cleaning Pads; the perfect way to clean your skin.

Standard

Skincare is an everyday battle. It begins as soon as we are born, and last until we die. You would think that as you age, it would get easier, but it doesn’t. I suffer from allergies so severe, that I have frequent anaphylaxis. My skin suffers from all of the reactions I have. Be it from regular reactive breakouts to skin infections, I am always maintaining something. Being able to exfoliate your skin is really the only way to really clean down to your pores. When I shower I use a battery operated facial scrubber, and boy does it clean. Unfortunately, it can be messy, and I am blessed only with small counter space in my bathroom. So, I do not use it at my sink. This 2 Pc Silicone Facial Scrubber Cleansing Pad Set by TOSHENG, is my answer. I can actually use these at the sink, and not make a big mess at all. There are two separate brushes in the set. They are made out of 100% Food Grade Silicone, and are very soft to the touch. These are soft enough to use on a babies scalp, to help ensure they do not get cradle cap. So, you can guarantee, that they will be gentle enough for your face.

aomuu-face-cleaning-pad-2

Silicone does not naturally harbor bacteria or mold. It is very easy to keep clean. You can even soak it in vinegar for 24 hours to sterilize it, if you had a skin infection. I used to sterilize medical equipment that way as a home nurse. On the back of each brush is a suction cup. I love that feature. You can attach it to your mirror, or the shower wall, or even both, since there are 2 in a pack. That helps them drain and dry quickly, and keeps them both out of the way, and handy for use. They measure out at 3 ¾” tall and just over 2 ½” wide at the widest part. These are my personal measurements. They are very easy to handle due to their size and flexibility of material. On each scrubber, they have 3 different bristle lengths. This helps to ensure being able to really get into your pores, and really clean your skin. I’m an all-natural kind of girl, so I use my handmade soap, or just a mixture of vinegar and baking soda. That really cleans out the pores, combined with this facial scrubber. When you clean in a circular motion you are also helping to increase the circulation to your skin, which is another health benefit. It is a massage for your face, besides cleaning out your pores, and exfoliating your skin.

These are the bristles from top to bottom. Top being the pointy edge:

Tiny Bristles: Used for cleaning sensitive parts of face such as the corner of eyes, the edges of nose…etc”

Middle Bristles: Remove blackheads and dirt in the pores, exfoliating and remove dead skin cells, soften the skin.”

Coarse Bristles: Massage your face, enhance facial blood circulation.”

Overall, these AOMUU Face Cleaning Pads are well made, easy to use, and really help clean my face. I am very pleased with them.

These are available here for purchase: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01NBL85T0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

LED Lighting from AglaiaDirect

Standard

I love LED lighting. Be it solar, decorative, holiday, security, or regular indoor house lighting. It is leaps and bounds better then compact fluorescents. Compact fluorescents have powdered mercury in them. You cannot legally throw them away in your trash, and if broken, you actually have a hazardous situation on hand. My son broke one once in his room, goofing around. What a nightmare. You can’t vacuum it up, it goes airborne. Everything has to be done right. It was a good week, if not longer, before he was allowed o go back into his room. They even emit radiation. You can hold a Geiger counter up to one and will pick up a reading; very scary indeed. I still can’t believe that I put them in my kids’ rooms. So, as LEDs emerged on to the market, we were all scared off by the insanely high price. Now that more companies are involved in their production, the price on LED products, has come way down. They are so affordable now, and save you so much on your electric bill. I was shocked to see the difference, but I love it.

I was sent two lights to review from AglaiaDirect. Two LED lights. One is a clip-on task oriented, work light, and the other is a desk lamp. Both lights arrived nicely packaged, and in great working order. I was pleased to see that neither of the lights had any imperfections to them.

The desk lamp, Aglaia LT-T16 LED Rechargeable Desk Lamp, is a 3W lamp. It is definitely a must have to have in home, if only for an emergency too. It is a rechargeable lamp, with an internal 1000mAh battery. If your power goes out, this light will still work for you. It has three settings: low, medium, and high. The touch sensor, to operate it, is on the base of the lamp. First touch brings I on in low, the second moves it to medium, and the third ouch to the high setting. The fourth touch turns it off. I love how the light holds its charge, and can be used unattached from its USB power cord that is included. The one negative is that they did not include an adapter with this product. You can bring this light anywhere to work, and I really love that flexibility. The light can barely be adjusted to its side, but can really be adjusted in the up and down motions. The LED covering is frosted, so this light is very eye friendly. It emits a cool white light, rated 5500 – 6000K. I am not too fond of the cool white light in home. It can be too stark, and remind me of morgue lighting, lol. Since It has the nice covering over the LEDs, the light is actually user friendly. The bottom of this lamp has a soft, foam like material. It stays put pretty well, and won’t mar your furniture. There are actually 20 LEDs in this lamp, with a max output of 220 lumens. Up close and personal, as a able lamp, 220 lumens is quite bright. The average height of this lamp, with the neck bent over, is 13” tall. If you place the neck of the lamp straight up and down, then its’ max height is 18” tall. It’s a very usable size.

The Aglaia LED Desk Lamp with Clamp, is a 4W lamp. Another energy saver. My husband and older son are both commercial electricians and carpenters, wood workers. Having a work light is always needed. This is great task oriented lighting. The base of the light is a clamp. It is a very sturdy clamp indeed, and holds in place perfectly. The clamp is a durable, thick metal, and the inside of the clamp is lined with a foam padding to help keep it from marring your furniture. This light requires a regular outlet to be used. The power cord is separate, but attaches to the part of the cord that is attached to the lamp. The cord has a built in on/off witch. The lamp is a touch lamp, for operation. If you turn it off on the switch on the cord, then touch will not activate it. This is great for people with pets, and or kids. When the light is turned on via the switch on the cord, there is a red ring that turns on, on the base. I like that touch, very sporty, and has a cool factor to it. This entire base is ouch sensitive, so you can ouch it at any point to turn the actual light on. The first touch turns it on low, the second touch turns it on in medium mode, and the third touch turns it on in high mode. The fourth touch then turns the light off. The entire casing of this light is metal, and durable; Aluminum and Iron to be exact. The neck is very flexible, and makes it so easy to direct the light to where you need it. The light given off on this lamp falls into the 4000-4500K color temperature range. It has a fine diffuser on it, and is actually pretty comfortable to work with. It’s still in the cool range, but warmer than the other lamp. MY light meter, about a foot away from the light, had this lamp at 5500 lux, on average. It did move around, and my hand moved. They do not give a specific lumen count for this light. I have not had any issues with the gooseneck failing on me. It has been holding pretty well in the positions I set it in. Overall, I really like how user friendly this light is, as well as the low energy usage of 4W. It does function really well as a task oriented work light.
